“..a movie of uncommon exhilaration.”
“Diana wants our respect — and by the end of the movie, she’s earned it. While she’s one of the prickliest protagonists you’ll see this year, she’s so raw and earnest and apologetically herself that you adore her anyway — from the safe distance of the screen.”
The New York Times
“…a celebration of perseverance, self-belief and learning how to be loved.”
